Farm and renewable energy

Renewable technologies have become a lucrative enterprise for farmers. Incentives like Feed-in-Tariffs and carbon trading options have encouraged investment. Whilst the technological advances in solar photovoltaics (solar panels), wind turbines and biomass boilers have made financial returns more lucrative. In this course the options for renewables open to farmers will provide a valuable resource for those planning and costing out installations. The course also covers approaches to farm energy savings. Look out for new modules on other technologies in this course which will be added in the near future.
